Labtec laser mouse

  wednesday 13 17:10 06 Oct 2006


My 1 and a half month old mouse is great except that the 4 way scroll has stopped working. I noticed this some time ago but just thought it was the programme i was using. The software can't have corrupt as the 2 side buttons work fine.

Also, while in a thread, could anyone please tell me what beta actually is?

Beta -

When software is being released, the first release to the public is usually called an alpha release (alpha being the first letter in the greek alphabet); a second, more stable release, is called a beta (the second letter in the greek alphabet) and this is usually the last one before a final release.

Alpha + beta = alphabet

There are many other steps but that's just a quickie answer...
Sorry I can't help with the mouse but maybe a reinstall of the software will help.
